This week Global Wales welcomed its second delegation of Vietnamese university leaders for a comprehensive training programme on university-industry collaboration. The programme has been jointly funded by British Council Vietnam, the Ministry of Education of Vietnam, Global Wales and Vietnamese university partners.
The visit incorporates site visits from the Newport Wafer Fab to the Menai Science Park and showcases key university and industry partnerships to highlight different successful models and to share best practice. It has also enabled networking with university colleagues across Wales with a view to scoping out and establishing collaborative projects.
Last month saw a similar delegation of university leaders visit Wales to look at the governance of higher education.
